BAPTISM POLICIES

 

Baptisms are held on the second Saturday of the month at the 4:30 p.m. Mass and the second and fourth Sunday of the month at 12:15 p.m.  The only exception would be that baptisms are not held during Advent and Lent.

 

Parents are required, and Godparents are encouraged, to participate in a Baptism preparation class conducted by the Baptism Preparation Team, which is held once a month. There is a $25 fee which helps defray the material costs for the program.  Please submit payment with the Baptism Registration form found below. When all paperwork is completed and parents have attended class, the parish office will schedule the baptism date.

 

The Catholic godparents - male and female – must be practicing, confirmed Catholics sixteen years of age or older.  They must obtain a letter or sponsor certificate from their parish indicating their parish membership and qualification to act as a sponsor for the sacrament of baptism.
